About 600 people marched in silence to the California State Capitol in Sacramento Monday. The march was in response to recent police shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana.
Marchers held signs that showed their different priorities.
A girl who identified herself as Shayla said the focus should be on black lives. She held a sign that says,"Saying 'all lives matter' is like the fire department spraying water on every house on the block when only one is on fire."
"It's not addressing the problem at hand which is displayed through the media and through the past/current events, which is of African American males being put in danger and not always coming out in one piece or alive," she says.
A few feet away, Adam Wong hoped to call attention to violence against all minorities.
"The top hash tag is Vincent Chin and this was back in the 80s," says Wong. "He was basically this Chinese man who was chilling in a bar and these off-duty cops went up to him and basically harassed him and eventually beat him to death (**see Reporter's Note at the bottom of this story)."
Zamorian Sherman held a sign that says, "We are more than just a hashtag."
"Because I feel like everyone is just putting hashtag, 'R.I.P' to whoever is passing away at the time. And I think we're just more than just a hash tag," says Sherman. "We're not just a hash tag. We're more than that. We're people. We're human. Everyone should unite and do more about it than just putting hash tags."
The march was organized by two teenagers and a chef and they made it a point to exclude anyone with intentions of violence during their event.
The group also voiced their support for the families of Dallas police officers who were killed last week.
Local law enforcement provided signs of support for the marchers in a different fashion.
Sacramento Police served as traffic detail, and the CHP bent its rules by allowing organizers to fill out a permit to hold an event on Capitol grounds while the event was underway.
The organizers say there will be more marches.
